One thing that I’ve always loved about SuperDad is his ability to make me laugh. Even in the most stressful times, he can say one word or phrase and make me crack up laughing. Mostly, they are quotes from some of our favorite movies, but other times it’s inside jokes that have come to be after our years together. A LOT of them come from Elf, our family’s Christmas movie tradition. SuperDad has an odd affection for Will Ferrell, apparently, as some of our other funnies come from his movies. I guess I could share a few to show you what I mean…

  • SuperDad enjoys giving me weird smiles when I’m in a mood. My usual response is, “Why are you smiling at me?!” His response is almost always, “Smiling’s my favorite!” (Elf)
  • When we’re feeling warm and fuzzy towards each other, we’ll call out “I LOVE LAMP!” (Anchorman)
  • When discussing our plans for the weekend, he’ll often say, “Well, um, actually a pretty nice little Saturday, we’re going to go to Home Depot. Yeah, buy some wallpaper, maybe get some flooring, stuff like that. Maybe Bed, Bath, & Beyond, I don’t know, I don’t know if we’ll have enough time.” (Old School)
  • And whenever he just wants to make me laugh, if I ask him what the heck he’s doing, he’ll respond, “We’re going streaking up through the quad and into the gymnasium!” (Also from Old School.)
  • When we think the other one is not being honest, we make the accusation, “You sit on a throne of lies!“. (Also from Elf.)

I could go on, but these are probably only funny to me, but I wanted to share them. What are your one-liners that cause instant laughter, no matter how tense the mood? Share with the group!

*The subject line is also from Elf.  Can you tell we really like that movie?  🙂
